“The frogurt is also cursed.”
The Simpsons, Treehouse of Horror III
Given that it’s Friday the 13th, I couldn’t resist a prompt related to superstitions. Our culture is full of shared superstitions about things that will bring bad luck: encountering black cats, breaking mirrors, spilling salt, and so on. There are also positive counterparts: finding a four leaf clover or a new penny, for instance. And many people have their own personal ideas about what might bring them luck, either good or bad. Write a scene, story or poem revolving around a superstitious person or action.
